FA Cup Semi-Final Draw

Manchester United will meet Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-finals of the Emirates FA Cup after the draw was made on Sunday evening.

The second semi-final will be between Chelsea and Southampton.

The draw was conducted by Gianfranco Zola, who won the Cup with Chelsea in 1997 and 2000, and Petr Cech, the Arsenal goalkeeper with five winners’ medals to his name.

Spurs were the first side into the last four following their 3-0 win at Swansea on Saturday afternoon.

United saw off Brighton at Old Trafford a few hours later, Southampton ended Wigan’s fairytale Cup run on Sunday, while Chelsea needed extra-time to get past Leicester City.

The semi-finals will take place over the weekend of 21-22 April.

The winners will make it through to The Final on Saturday 19 May and will pick up £900,000 from The FA prize fund while each losing semi-finalist will pocket £450,000.
